During the Golden State Warriors' 2017 championship parade, owner Joe Lacob addressed the crowd and informed them that the cost of the festivities would be covered by the organization as a gift to the city of Oakland.

It's been nearly three months since the parade took place, and the Warriors reportedly haven't paid a dime toward its cost, according to The Mercury News' Matthias Gafni.

The final fee came in at roughly $816,000, according to the city, while the $244,000 bill for the 2015 festivities has also not been covered. The city is asking the Warriors organization to pick that up as well, per an invoice obtained by The East Bay Times.

The city sent a bill of $1 million to the Warriors on July 19 - to cover both the 2015 and 2017 festivities - and the due date for payment passed on Aug. 18 with no money being moved.

"We are in ongoing conversation with the Warriors; they have questions about some of these charges which we are in the process of answering," city spokeswoman Karen Boyd said in an email. "The Warriors have given us no reason to doubt they will honor their commitments."

"There's been no determination of what a final bill is," Warriors spokesman Raymond Riddler said.

A day after the most recent parade, Riddler said the team was set to pay $4 million to cover costs. Riddler said this week that those costs were mostly for elements that didn't involve the government.
